Corey Thompson



  • @:

    People seem to forget that before he went to the Dogs he starred in the QLD Cup at fullback and had never played on the wing but the dogs had Barba but he was playing so well they needed to find somewhere for him because he was playing so well so he played wing.

    So fullback is his natural position and I have a feeling we might get a surprise at just how well he goes at FB

    I doubt people forget that, they probably just never knew (I know I didn’t). I figure if he was a gun fullback he would’ve spent 100% of his time playing there in the ESL, and he didn’t.



  • I was just thinking that maybe Ivan has realised Corry is a good option as backup fullback
    So he gives him a full game at fullback against the sharks to really test him
    Corry comes trough with flying colours
    No need to sign RTS or Barba now
    So now he has 1.4million to by players for other more needed positions
    What do you guys think

    I’m pretty sure we’ll be chasing RTS regardless. I very much doubt Corey Thompson will make the club change its mind lol.

    Regardless of how lolohea or Thompson go in the fullback role… I’d say the club will still be going all out for rts imo

    100% RTS for 2019 and Cleary for 2020.

  • Extended his stay!

  • Tigers reward Thompson with new contract for 2019
    Author Alicia Newton Timestamp Tue 3 Apr 2018, 06:01 PM

    Corey Thompson has capped off a memorable return to the Telstra Premiership with the Wests Tigers announcing his re-signing until the end of 2019.

    Thompson joined the joint venture club after two years in the English Super League and has made an immediate impact, helping guide the side to three wins in their opening four games of the season.

    The 27-year-old was a shock selection in the season opener by Ivan Cleary, who opted for the former Bulldogs winger over fan favourite David Nofoaluma after an impressive pre-season that proved too good to ignore.

    Thompson has responded in the first month of the competition, averaging 140 metres per game and with four line breaks and three tries.

    “I came back to the NRL with no expectations, just the opportunity Ivan gave me I wanted to take with both hands,” Thompson told NRL.com on Tuesday.

    "I love this club and feel like I’ve been here for a lot longer than I have.

    “It’s all worked out so far but now I want to keep working hard because we’ve still got a long way to go as a side and personally I can get better.”

    Head coach Ivan Cleary said Thompson’s new deal was a reward for his hard work.

    “Corey has been impressive in how he’s committed himself to training and his efforts on the field since joining the club,” said Cleary. “His new contract is a great reward for his hard work and I look forward to seeing him continue to develop over the coming seasons.”

    Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe said that Thompson has been impressive both on and off the field.

    “I’d like to commend Corey on how he’s settled into life at Wests Tigers and how he has bought into the direction that we are taking the club,” said Pascoe. “He’s an impressive young man who has quickly become a fan favourite and we all look forward to having him as a part of our club long into the future.”



  • Nice. Get in early with a 1 year extension.
    Great work Tigers.

    100% RTS for 2019 and Cleary for 2020.

    Really doubt that RTS will want to leave the Warriors. Especially with their current form.

    Not when he just re-signed 2 weeks ago.

    Why would he if he just signed a 3-4 year contract. Sounds like he is happy to me.

    Ooops, didn’t realise how old that comment was.



  • We must remember that the top line players we seek we have recently lost like JAC and Marty.
    But also thankfully some top liners may already be here it just may become more apparent in 6 months or so. 😉
